Subj: Conflicting Proverbs (S548)
      From: LABLaughsClean in 2007

 Conflicting proverbs (I'm so confused. . . )

 Actions speak louder than words.
 The pen is mightier than the sword.

 Look before you leap.
 He who hesitates is lost.

 Many hands make light work.
    (or) Two heads are better than one.
 Too many cooks spoil the broth.

 A silent man is a wise one.
 A man without words is a man without thoughts.

 Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
 Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

 Clothes make the man.
 Don't judge a book by its cover.
    (or) All that glitters is not gold.

 Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
 Better safe than sorry.

 The bigger, the better.
 The best things come in small packages.

 Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
 Out of sight, out of mind.

 What will be, will be.
 Life is what you make it.

 Cross your bridges when you come to them.
 Forewarned is forearmed.

 What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
 One man's meat is another man's poison.

 With age comes wisdom.
 Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings
    come all wise sayings.

 The more, the merrier.
 Two's company; three's a crowd.

 The best things in life are free.
 You get what you pay for.

 It never rains, than it pours.
 Lightning never strikes twice in thesame place.

 Better to ask the way than to go astray.
 Ask no questions and hear no lies.

 Never do evil, that good may come of it.
 The end justifies the means.

 Variety is the spice of life.
 Don't change horses in the middle ofa stream.

 There is nothing permanent except change.
 There is nothing new under the sun.

 Never too old to learn.
 You can't teach an old dog new tricks.

 Everything comes to him who waits.
 He who hesitates is lost.

 Opposites attract.
 Birds of a feather flock together.

Subj:     More T-Shirt Slogans (S374b)
          From: mombear1 in 2004

 A Washington Post columnist runs a column each summer
 listing interesting t-shirts observed at the Ocean City,
 Maryland beach:

 I childproofed my house, but they still get in.

 On the front - 60 is not old.
 On the back - If you're a tree.

 I'm still hot.  It just comes in flashes.

 At my age, "getting lucky" means finding my car
 in the parking lot.

 My reality check just bounced.

 Life is short, make fun of it.

 I'm not 50. I'm $49.95 plus tax.

 Annapolis - A drinking town with a sailing problem.

 Physically pffffffft!

 Buckle up.  It makes it harder for the aliens to snatch
 you from your car.

 I'm not a snob.  I'm just better than you are.

 It's my cat's world.  I'm just here to open cans.

 Earth is the insane asylum of the universe.

 Keep staring . . . . I may do a trick.

 We got rid of the kids.  The cat was allergic .

 Dangerously under-medicated.

 My mind works like lightning.  One brilliant flash,
 and it's gone.

 Every time I hear the word "exercise," I wash my mouth
 out with chocolate.

 Cats regard people as warm-blooded furniture.

 Live your life so that when you die, the preacher will
 not have to tell lies at your funeral.

 In God we trust.  All others we polygraph.

Subj:     Modern Proverbs (S211)
          From: pns in 2001

 If you're too open minded, your brains will fall out.

 Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

 Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than
 going to a garage makes you a mechanic.

 Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

 A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

 A closed mouth gathers no feet.

 If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've
 never tried before.

 My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.

 Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that
 life is serious.

 It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.

 For every action, there is an equal and opposite
 government program.

 If you look like your passport picture,
 you probably need the trip.

 Always yield to temptation, because it may not
 pass your way again.

 Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.

 A conscience is what hurts when all your
 other parts feel so good.

 Eat well, stay fit--die anyway.

 No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

 A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.

 Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness
 of the waist change places.

 Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

 Junk is something you throw away three weeks
 before you need it.

 There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.

 Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to
 recognize a mistake when you make it again.

 By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

 Thou shalt not weigh more than the refrigerator.

 I believe the only time the world beats a path to my door
 is when I'm in the bathroom.

 Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they
 shall never cease to be amused.

Subj:     Company Slogans
          From: Ossama's Laugh in 1997

 Cracking an international market is a goal of most growing
 corporations.  It shouldn't be that hard, yet even the big
 multi-nationals run into trouble because of language and
 cultural differences. For example...

 The name Coca-Cola in China was first rendered as Ke-kou-
 ke-la.  Unfortunately, the Coke company did not discover
 until after thousands of signs had been printed that the
 phrase means "bite the wax tadpole" or "female horse
 stuffed with wax" depending on the dialect. Coke then
 researched 40,000 Chinese characters and found a close
 phonetic equivalent, "ko-kou-ko-le," which can be loosely
 translated as "happiness in the mouth."

 In Taiwan, the translation of the Pepsi slogan "Come alive
 with the Pepsi Generation" came out as "Pepsi will bring
 your ancestors back from the dead."

 Also in Chinese, the Kentucky Fried Chicken slogan "finger-
 lickin' good "came out as "eat your fingers off."

 The American slogan for Salem cigarettes, "Salem - Feeling
 Free," got translated in the Japanese market into "When
 smoking Salem, you feel so refreshed that your mind seems
 to be free and empty."

 When General Motors introduced the Chevy Nova in South
 America, it was apparently unaware that "no va" means "it
 won't go."  After the company figured out why it wasn't
 selling any cars, it renamed the car in its Spanish markets
 to the Caribe.

 Ford had a similar problem in Brazil when the Pinto flopped.
 The company found out that Pinto was Brazilian slang for
 "tiny male genitals".  Ford pried all the nameplates off and
 substituted Corcel, which means horse.

 When Parker Pen marketed a ballpoint pen in Mexico, its ads
 were supposed to say "It won't leak in your pocket and
 embarrass you."  However, the company's mistakenly thought
 the spanish word "embarazar" meant embarrass.  Instead the
 ads said that "It wont leak in your pocket and make you

 An American t-shirt maker in Miami printed shirts for the
 spanish market which promoted the Pope's visit.  Instead
 of the desired "I Saw the Pope" in Spanish, the shirts
 proclaimed "I Saw the Potato."

 Chicken-man Frank Perdue's slogan, "It takes a tough man
 to make a tender chicken," got terribly mangled in another
 Spanish translation.

 A photo of Perdue with one of his birds appeared on
 billboards all over Mexico with a caption that explained
 "It takes a hard man to make a chicken aroused."

 Hunt-Wesson introduced its Big John products in French
 Canada as Gros Jos before finding out that the phrase, in
 slang, means "big breasts."  In this case, however, the
 name problem did not have a noticeable effect on sales.

 Colgate introduced a toothpaste in France called Cue, the
 name of a notorious porno mag.

 In Italy, a campaign for Schweppes Tonic Water translated
 the name into Schweppes Toilet Water.

 Japan's second-largest tourist agency was mystified when
 it entered English-speaking markets and began receiving
 requests for unusual sex tours.  Upon finding out why, the
 owners of Kinki Nippon Tourist Company changed its name.

 and finally...

 In an effort to boost orange juice sales in predominantly
 continental breakfaste eating England, a campaign was
 devised to extoll the drink's eye-opening, pick-me-up
 qualities.  Hence, slogan, "Orange juice.  It gets your
 pecker up."
